Clarity in the Clouds

A couple weeks ago I was sitting in church and as the pastor was talking, these words came out of his mouth, “Resurrection simply cannot happen to those who aren’t dead first.” That little statement shook me from my Sunday morning daze. It broke through the cloud of selfish thoughts that tried to seperate me […]

Playing it safe

Below is an excerpt from the devotional I wrote for our youth’s group winter retreat a few weeks ago. The theme of the weekend was ‘Reckless’ and was based of the song with the same title by Jeremy Camp. … In the song, we hear the lyrics: Everytime I try to play it safe Holding […]

Dedication and Consistency

I had this idea that I would be able to continue to post meaningful content for years as long as I was dedicated and consistent in my effort. After only 5 or 6 months I have now found it difficult to maintain the output of information that I wanted to create. Part of it is […]

That one question

As a Christ follower, I sometimes come across people who are…less than accepting of my beliefs. Believe it or not, there are some people out that who are against Christianity and who believe it is a bunch of B.S. I know, I was surprised too. Actually, a good part of 70% of the world has […]

We pull out our phones when standing around talking to our friends, and then watched the domino effect as everyone else follows suit. The act of checking our phones has become contagious; like the flue, yawning, or rubbing your […]

I am Peter

Hi. I’m Peter. OK, not really, but in many ways, I am like Peter. And so are you. Jesus replied,  “I tell you the truth, Peter—this very night, before the rooster crows, you will deny three times that you even know me.” “No!” Peter insisted. “Even if I have to die with you, I will […]

Change Your Perspective

I came across this video recently and it blew my mind. Have you ever seem something that made so much sense, but that you had never thought of before? We have all seen models of our solar system before. We have all seen the artist renderings in our middle school science books. We all know that the planets, […]

2012 in Review

Below are the top posts from No Cubicle Required for 2012. I started this blog on my birthday back in June and this experience has helped me to understand my faith more, to define what I believe, to question those beliefs and articulate why I believe what I do. I look forward to continue that […]
